Friday's Feast and just some 411

Fill in the blanks:
I get extremely uncomfortable and self conscious when I cry in front of other people.

Name something you use to make your home smell good.

Citrus Magic. I love the smell of freshly peeled oranges and this has pure orange, lemon and lime oils in it. Smells wonderfully fresh! I also use some spray I got at Bath & Body Works. Cinnamon Stick, Warm Nutmeg or Fresh Vanilla. Makes the house smell like fresh baked cookies!

If you could receive a coupon in the mail for 50% off any product, what would you want it to be for?

A product? Not an item like a car or a huge plasma TV? Well that sucks. Hmmm, I would probably want it for the LipFusion XL – which costs 50.00 a pop but one tube lasts forever and works like a dream in plumping up your pucker. Or for the really super whitening strips for my teeth which are around the same price, maybe a little more. My teeth are pretty white but it always helps to have something around to make them whiter.

Main Course
Besides sleeping, what do you spend the majority of the hours of your typical day doing?

Work. Lots of work. At work. Lots and lots of work at work. Emily is usually sleeping by 8 so I only have a best 2 hours with her after work. My soldier in Iraq, we’ll call him D for now, and I chat on IM after Emily is sleeping, usually at the very least 3 hours every night, unless there’s a power outage over there which has happened twice this week. I'm usually getting to sleep around 1 in the morning and the alarm is going off at 5:45 so even sleep isn’t a majority of my hours anymore.

What can you hear right now while answering these questions?

Allison Kraus singing, the air conditioning and a motorcycle driving down the street.


Ok, so I have been just AWFUL about posting lately. It’s one of those break thingies that everyone’s doing. And that’s all good.

So, here’s the latest 411 in my life. Em and I are going to a friend’s birthday party in Houston tomorrow. Em’s all kinds of excited b/c this friend’s granddaughter, who Emily just adores, will be there (along with about 15 other kids) and Emily will be having a lot of fun.

Next week D comes home from Iraq for a two week leave. He and I are going to get together in Dallas for about 24 hours after which he will be flying home to South Dakota (he’s already half jokingly asked me if I want to come along with him and bring Emily too) for a few days. After that, the first weekend of August, he will be here in Austin, hopefully for at least 3 or 4 days before heading back out to Iraq for 8 more long months until his deployment is over in February. I am looking forward to this leave time just like kids look forward to the ice cream man on a hot summer day! February will be more along the lines of “just like kids look forward to Christmas”. LOL!

Awesome! I remember that anticipation, waiting for someone to come home, and it was just so unbearably delicious.

I hope you have a good time.
